Help with community surveys and community engagement

The Parish Council have identified that they do not have a way to engage with the community quickly to share important information and seek community views and feedback on consultations. Looking for someone in the Parish who can help set up surveys to put to the community electronically, manage the data and provide survey data summary reports for the Parish Council. Initially we want to find out what people think in the community about contributing to the West Berkshire Council Library Services and feedback on the Chieveley Recreational Centre outdoor play facilities. Other consultations likely to follow. If you have experience in setting up surveys on-line, engaging the community audience for feedback and have some time to offer we would like to hear from you.  Please email the clerk at
